I've had the 2.25" tubeless ready version for about a month and half now. I have little to compare against, but comparing to my previous tubed 1.8" Kenda Slant Six, and before that to the stock, tubed 2.1" Maxxis Crossmark, I have to say that running these tires, and running tubeless, is like night and day. The grip with the lower pressure is amazing. The improvement in cornering and confidence is also hard to credit. The one thing these tires do NOT do well is handle mud. I rode the FLoop the other day and the mud was ubiquitous, thick, and slimy. While I never had to put a foot down, the tires did not shed much of it and I was, in the words of an infamous tune, "slip-sliding away." Other than that, I'm impressed. I like them. I'll keep them and probably buy them again, but maybe in a 2.0" version.
